A behind the scenes look

What people have to say about working with the Shelly Gracey Team

Shelly advised us on the current real estate climate, and we collaborated to price our home strategically. Her team worked very hard to help us get our house ready in a very short amount of time, and they worked around our schedule to bring it all together. When pre-emptive offers came in, she took the time to discuss the offers, all things considered. Shelly is not someone who works to her own benefit. When you love what you do and you are passionate about your service, money will follow. Shelly truly loves what she does and she is a person of integrity. She gives her clients all of the information, shares her professional opinion (which is based not only her education and market research, but also on her years of experience). Ultimately, the decision to sell or not, or to accept an offer or not, or buy or not, is up to the client. She does not pressure anyone to do anything they are not comfortable with. If Shelly is driven by a bottom line, it isn’t her commission. It is apparent to me that what is important to Shelly at the end of the day is the her clients’ satisfaction and her commitment to making sure they love where they live. It’s her slogan, and it is true. Having bought and sold with her previously, I not only love where I live – I love where I am moving to in a few short months.

We bought our first home with Shelly and we’re so glad that we did. She was knowledgeable, personable, professional, and just a great person to have to walk us through the steps. Since moving to Paris, we’ve seen Shelly’s passion for her community. She seems to be involved in every community group, and I truly believe that she makes Paris a better place and a stronger community. Shelly came strongly recommended to us, and know we know why – and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Once in a while you meet someone that really impresses you. Shelly’s commitment to getting the job done is unbelievable. She got the sale quickly in a tough market and took a lot of stress out of the whole business of selling and moving. Tks Shelly

As a respectful real estate broker, Shelly Gracey went beyond the call of service in assisting my partner Shelley and I through every step of the selling process of our unique home. Her patience and knowledge of the real estate marketplace is worth sharing with anyone considering selling their precious property. I can now say I can trust two Shellys.

Shelly was awesome! Friendly, efficient, she listened to what I wanted and the end result was exactly what I wanted. My house sold in 3 days with no hassles and a lot less stress than I anticipated!

Saskia Levear

I have thought about this review over and over. Nothing I can say here will do justice to the service we received from Shelly. I lost track of how many times she went above and beyond, the entire process was amazing. Our house was not an easy one to sell, not only did she sell it quickly we got our asking price. She knows her stuff, look no further, contact me with any questions.

Paul Cheney

Shelly has helped us with our last 3 house transactions, she’s always very quick to arrange viewings, both for us and for potential buyers.
Friendly, courteous, and professional. Always a great experience.


I have worked with Shelly on a professional basis. She is a strong community leader and is always willing to give a hand to help out in her community. Her business ethics are top notch and I would highly recommend that you reach out to her for any real estate services.

Shelly was the BEST agent I have ever worked with. I have sold and bought 5 houses and no agent has gone out of her way as Shelly did to make the experience as little stressful as possible. I highly recommend her.

Catherine Johnson

Shelly sold our home in one weekend. Shelly is very professional and accurate about the market. Anytime we had a question, Shelly responded quickly. We are very happy and satisfied! Thanks for everything you have done for us!

John Boychuk

Living in Paris I always saw Shelly’s name around on social media promoting the town. When it came time to sell my condo I knew I could trust her and her knowledge of the local market to get the best price for my property.
Shelly and her team were fantastic to work with. I’ve never had a real estate agent go so above and beyond in preparing and staging a property in order to give the best showing. Shout out to Alanna her stager for doing a wonderful job.
I would highly recommend Shelly Gracey to anyone in the area needing a professional, experienced real estate agent.

Working with Shelly on finding our new home, was an exceptional experience. Her knowledge of the market and understanding of what we really wanted, helped us to find our perfect home. Excellent communicator, responsive and extremely personable. We have recommended Shelly to our family and friends.

I found Shelly through a local search and I am eternally grateful that she was able to accept us as customers. Shelly has gone over and above and is the one the very best Real Estate Professionals I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Angus Sitahal

I cannot commend Shelley Gracey enough for all that she has done in helping us find our perfect family home. She was so patient with us as we tried to navigate our way through this crazy market. Not only did Shelley help us to find our perfect house, but she walked with us through all the minute details in inspecting and closing the house. She also had excellent recommendations for jobs that needed to be completed after purchase. Her openness and honesty with us helped us feel at ease that she truly believed we would find our family home. And we did. We thank you Shelley for everything.

Lisa Bergen

Hands down one of the best real estate agents I’ve worked with. I am a first time home buyer/investor and listed my property for rent. Shelly went above and beyond to ease my anxiety by thinking and addressing any issues I may experience in the future and made excellent suggestions to address those issues. She basically taught me how to manage a home, and for that I’m very appreciative. I am very content with the tenants I have, who are easy to work with and respectful. If it’s not obvious from my post, I highly recommend Shelly as a real estate agent and will definitely use her services again in the future.

Surinder Multani

Shelly has been an absolute joy to work with as our Real Estate agent. We recently sold our house and Shelly’s guidance has been extremely valuable. Shelly walked us through determining the best asking price to maximize our return, how best to handle showings and how best to set up our house to be the most inviting to potential buyers. We ended up receiving a significantly higher price for our house than what we expected. Not only did Shelly advise us on how to sell the house but also has been by our side after the offer acceptance all the way to closing. It has been very comforting to know that Shelly is their throughout this entire process. Shelly’s professionalism and honesty has been refreshing and I would not hesitate to use Shelly again. I strongly recommend anyone that is looking for a Real Estate agent to contact Shelly. I am sure that once you talk to Shelly you will realize that her sincerity is immediately evident and you will feel comfortable putting your trust in her.

Michael Lestage

Shelly and her team were excellent. Any questions I had she found answers for. She helped me through every step of the way & was the reason that my house sold so quickly after the first viewing.

Janet Foy

Shelly was recommended to us, and Jeff and I are very happy to have had the opportunity to work with such a well respected realtor to find our new home. In today’s housing market we would have been lost without her invaluable knowledge and professional expertise. We were very at ease placing our trust in Shelly. She truly went above and beyond all of our expectations and now we too love where we live… thank you! We definitely recommend Shelly.

Shelley McCormick

Shelly helped me purchase my first home in Paris and then more recently helped me sell it as I was moving provinces. I absolutely cannot say enough about how excellent she was, both times, through the entire process. She is incredibly responsive and consistently went above and beyond to make sure that I was A) completely satisfied with the proceedings and B) fully aware of every element of the process.
What set Shelly apart from other realtors, for me, was her extraordinary kindness and compassion. She went way beyond what anyone would consider to be reasonable expectations for a realtor. Working with Shelly I couldn’t help but have a positive experience during the biggest financial decisions of my life. I can say with 100% confidence that if you hire Shelly you will be beyond satisfied with your choice and you will have gained a realtor, and probably a friend, for life.
Thank-you Shelly for everything you did for me!

Kyle Lavoie

We met Shelly while house hunting for, myself and my boyfriend’s first home together, she contacted us incredibly fast, and lined up a bunch of homes for us to look at.
She was very organized and prepared,
Shelly has an amazing personality, she is easy going and super friendly.
I felt like we had been friends forever, she made us feel that comfortable.
Over the year after we met , my grams passed , so we had a house to sell.
I would not have ask anyone else to help us with such a hard and sad task.
She worked hard during covid to make sure everyone was happy and up to date on the sale.
Shelly has made a loyal client, my boyfriend and I will refer her to anyone we know, and use her whenever we need an agent! Simply an amazing person.

Michelle Loker

Shelly was with us from start to finish.
We had a unique property to sell and Shelly creatively found the right formula to attract our buyer.
We moved to a different province and Shelly went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable in the closing of our home.
I would not think twice to recommend her as your broker.

Shelley Locche

Shelly is great! How do I know this? Well as a purchaser and a seller i have put Shelly through her paces. She was continually patient even after multiple viewings, even when it came to shelving the idea of selling and then changing our minds months later. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy.

Jay Grimes

Shelly Gracey is a professional representative and a caring person. She was attentive to the needs and concerns of ourselves and our prospective landlords, and persistent in leading all of us through the leasing process. She answered all our questions honestly and respectfully. We would not hesitate to seek her advice and guidance in any future real estate transaction and we recommend her without reservation to others in need of her professional and caring services.

Bob Mather-Dyer

Shelly was a great help to my partner and myself when we were looking for our home. It began when we needed to sell one residence and she assisted us in finding our current home. She went above and beyond for us and has become a close friend and we recommend her all the time. Shelly is a highly motivated individual and goes above and beyond for her clients. She is well known in the community and is well respected in the community.

Brenda Kennedy

Shelly has been our Real Estate agent for about 10 years. We have always found Shelly extremely helpful and professional with our interests always ahead of a sale.
Shelly is always returning our calls and questions within a reasonable timeline. We highly recommend Shelly. She had represented or helped us on 4 or 5 Real Estate deals now.

Cam Hayes

Shelly was amazing to work with- start to finish. She is responsive, knowledgeable, professional, and goes above and beyond in so many ways!
She helped me to sell my home in the midst of COVID, making sure I was informed and updated on the market. 20 offers later we sold well over asking and couldn’t be happier.

She most recently has been a part of a new house hunt with my partner and I- going to see houses and keeping an eye on the market for us while we couldn’t. We move in to our new home this summer and could not be more excited! Thank you

Sommer Ferguson

Shelley was so great to work with on the sale of our first home. She made us feel comfortable with all of our decisions and allowed us to get achieve our goals throughout the process. She didn’t let our relationship end at the sale as she still checks in and has continued to gift us with experiences! I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a realtor.

Best realtor team that either myself or my wife ever had the pleasure to work with. They were extremely courteous and professional. With their assistance. We had a wonderful staging that was easy to manage with very large dogs in the house. Thank you so much for all the work you and your team accomplished and we got over asking.
